Asian American characters in film—especially the women—are usually employed to fill a stereotypical role. The awkward nerd. The teenager suffocating under their tiger parents' control. The foreign exchange student. But we're so happy to see a few recent AA characters whose value is in their humanity, not their tokenism.
In To All The Boys I've Loved Before, Lara Jean (Lana Condor) is a high schooler struggling with all the things that your typical American teenager does: unrequited crushes, self-confidence, social media.
In Crazy Rich Asians, Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) gets to have a Cinderella story that celebrates rather than otherizes a specific Asian—and Asian-American—experience and story.
In Killing Eve, Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) is an MI5 officer who gets tangled up in the hunt for serial killer Villanelle; she's a dedicated worker with a mental landscape as deep and troubled as Villanelle's, and it's not occupied by thoughts of the homeland or cooking rice.
and meet some of the most beautiful and exotic women in the world. Explore the hottest nightclubs where you find a more exhilarating nightlife in the city.

"I got pregnant, 3 times with the same guy. I always asked him to marry me, but he's not ready. So I chose to do abortion. In my country, abortion is illegal in every way, but I managed to find those who sell the pill. The worst thing is that he never accompanied me during the process. I was alone all the time in hotel room, crying in pain - physically & psychologically. I don't know why I still love him & hope that one day we will get married & have kids." - Indonesia, 2015

"I was too young to understand that it was a sexual harassment, and I'm too afraid to tell it to anybody. What will happen next if everyone know, that the 4 years old me was harassed regularly by my a group of mid-30s neighbors? Even now, it is scary to remember about that time. I will live in this shadow forever." - Bangkok, 2017

Some details from the women at our training centre hard at work. ✂
One of our main initiatives here at KNWO is ensuring women have an ability to make and control their own income...thus we have our training centre!
At the training centre we teach women how to sew and make garments, thereby empowering them with an ability to make and sell products.
We offer this training to those from local townships, women from refugee camps and other women who might be considered vulnerable: widows, women who haven't had access to higher education or those fleeing abusive relationships.
KNWO pays for all transport costs, training, accomodation and food expenses during this training programme. We then provide graduates with marketing classes, their own sewing machine and the required materials to get started with their new business - we do this because we believe lack of income shouldn't be a deterrent to learning these valuable skills.
KNWO aims to support women and make them independent and successful so they can live happier and healthier lives. The training centre has had great feedback and success stories shared from our graduates!
"It's been such an amazing journey putting this book together. I've had the most beautiful days writing the poems."
